OTHER MODULES/BOTS:

DiscussBot
There is a Mambot utility that allows a "discussion link" to be inserted
into Mambo/Joomla News items.
This link will create a new topic, if one does not already exist. If a topic linked
to this News item does exist,
the link will add a reply from the current user.
Chadness has taken over most of the work on this Bot, HERE
(note: Currently the joomla discussbot in that thread does not work in mambo. Please see below for a working discussbot)

SEARCHBOT
This Bot will add SMF locations into your standard Mambo search function.
RJPrince has made an excellent utility: a searchbot to integrate the SMF forums into Mambo's general search feature. Be sure to read the readme file to make necessary changes to index.php.
also avilable by link at the Princeclan site

NOTE: I don't know if the searchbot works correctly with the new Mambo bridge.

AUTHORBOT
This bot will associate the author of Mambo Content Items to the user's SMF Profile. Written by Benson, Orstio (and Kindred) have made a few corrections and the modified version is available in the post below.

MISCELLANEOUS MODULES

There are various modules that use SSI functions to display SMF
information in the Mambo framework.
These can all be loaded directly into Mambo Admin > Install > Universal.

mod_related_topics:
  This module displays links to SMF topics that are related to the Item currently displayed.
  These are based on the keywords Metadata. All the keywords of the current Content Item are
  searched against the titles of topics. For example, you may have an Item on 'Breeding Cockatoos'
  and you may have a discussion entitled 'Hand Raising Parrots'. If you include the keyword
  'parrot' in the Metadata of the item, then the Related Topics module will list the
  'Hand Raising Parrots' Topic when viewing 'Breeding Cockatoos'.

mod_smf_RecentEvents:
  This module uses the SSI function to display the Upcoming (5 days) Events, in a simple list.

mod_smf_RecentPosts:
  This module uses the SSI function to display the last 5 posts made in the SMF Forum.

mod_smf_RecentTopics:
  This module uses the SSI function to display the last 5 Topics posted to in the SMF Forum.

mod_smf_NewTopics:
  This module uses the SSI function to display the last 5 NEW Topics posted in the SMF Forum.

mod_smf_topTopicsReplies.zip
  This module uses the SSI function to display the top 5 Topics posted to in the SMF Forum.

mod_smf_whosOnline
  This module uses the SSI function to display the users currently online.
  (The Mambo Who's Online module is buggy when working with the bridge. This file
  actually is also a bit buggy...&nbsp; I recommend using the online2 module listed next)

mod_smf_online2.zip
  This module has been modified by Kindred and then spruced up (alot) by mic. Mic has
  done a great job and there are many parameters you can set to get the display that
  you want. This, by default, displays the number of Guests and Users online and then
  a bulleted list of the users. The exact text, and the format of the list of users
  (bulleted or comma separated) is defined in the module configuration.

mod_smf_topPosters.zip
  This module has been designed from the original SSI function by Kindred. It will list
  the top X posters along with their current post count (all defineable as parameters)

mod_smf_events.zip
  This module has been modified from the original SSI function by Kindred. It will list
 (configurable) the holidays, birthdays and events form the SMF calendar.

mod_smf_showcal.zip
  This module has been modified from White Rabbit's original attempt at the bridge
  and SSI functions by Kindred. It is fairly configurable and will show the SMF calendar
  in minitaure, to fir in the module (usually side-bar) space. A mouse-over of days with
  events will show a pop-up with the event, holiday and/or birthday information from
  the SMF calendar.

mod_smf_keystats2.zip
  This module by xenovanis displays certain statistics about your SMF forum.

Kindred:
Attached to this message are versions of the modules & bots that will work with v1.1 Stable and higher of the bridge.

The Discussbot can be gotten from this link... Although Orstio has modified the discussbot from Chadness to work with Mambo 4.6.2 (see attached file, below)

NOTE: I have not confirmed that the authorbot or searchbot work correctly with the mambo bridge v1.1 Stable.
